Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 203602
Right fifth of screen blank when desktop effects enabled
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
Description of problem:
When I enabled desktop effects (with the app), my screen redraws but the
right-hand fifth or so of it doesn't redraw. I also have no desktop background.
It remains this way even though the effects work. If I try to switch back to
no desktop effects, the machine hangs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC6t2 on IBM T42
2. Desktop->Preferences->More Preferences->Desktop Effects => Enable ...
4/5 screen with no desktop background.
This was happening with FC6t2, rawhide last week, and current rawhide (2006-08-22).
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M7 LW
[Radeon Mobility 7500]
With today's (20060824) updates, I can successfully revert the settings without
a lockup but the right-hand fifth of my panel doesn't redraw and there doesn't
appear to be a way to get it back (moving, xrefresh).
